Indian Summer and the County Fairs S OME of the leaves are already turning' dull brown and red and prold, fluttering from swaying limbs like invitations to a preview of autumn. Indian Summer and all its cheerful promises can't be far away. And with the fall comes the opening of school, the kick,off, chilly mornings, the yellow harvest and its yellower moon, bonfires and county fairs—most of all county fairs. Few things are as 'remarkable in this age of rural development, radios and fast transportation as the survival, even the steady gain, of the county fair. Essentially it hasn't changed very much from the first event of its kind ever held . in this country—back in 1810 when Elkanah Watson, a "gentleman farmer" in the vicinity of Albany, N. Y., conceived the idea of a Berkshire cattle show. A show that began as a display of cattle broadened to take in other products of the farm arid Inevitably grew into that Item of American life that is probably better known and more typical than any other today. It spells demonstration barns lined with pens of grunting, over-weight hogs, moody-eyed bulls, grousing milk cows and proud percherons; long cages of wattled turkeys, strutting roosters, inquisitive hens, noisy ducks and geese. It recalls white-covered tables with heavy cargoes of cakes, layer, chocolate, angel and the inevitable markle; open pies and closed pies and pies with crusty lacing over the top. XXX •TWO decades ago it was wagons and buggies with enough 1 cold fried chicken to last four days while the hapless hired hand stayed at home to dp the chores and steal a nap at high noon. Now it is bulky trucks and shiny sedans, with a 30- minute drive home in the evening. But it's the same fair, then and now, The midway hasn't changed. The same barker is just as fascinating and the same prizes have the same usefulness. The two-headed calf and Little Egypt (did you ever see your mother put a plate of jello out on a cold frosty morning?) are there, or their counterparts. The roller coaster and the fer- ris wheel and the merry-go-round may have a coat of paint, but that's all. There are 3000 state, district and county—mostly county-^-fairs held.in the United States everv^ year. Some of them, like the February carnivals of FloriSa 5 MH the July fairs of California, aren't held in the fall. 'But those are just offshoots of the original autumn-bearing perennial. To most of the populace, the first brisk, nipping fall wind will bring memories., and you can just about wager the memories aren't far away from the county fair grounds.

They raised half a million dollars for an advertising campaign. They sought new export markets, for the United States raises more.apples than any other nation in the world. .

MORRIS FISHBEm Mltor, Journal of (be American Medical Association, Md •! . the Health Over-active Pancreas Results in Too Much Insulin Being Secreted for Body This is the 14th of 20 articles by Dr. Fkhbein 011 the. function of thp glands in the body. (No. 315) In the discussions of diabetes that have already been published, mention ' has been made of the relationship of the Islands of Langerhans in the pancreas to the cause of that disease. The pancreas has not only an external secretion which goes into the intestines, aiding in the digestion of protein, but also an internal secretion which is vital in the handling of the sugar by the body. It has been proved that removal of the pancreas surgically results in death within three weeks, because of the tremendous increase of blood sugar in the body. In 1922, Banting and Best, aided by McLeod and Collip, were able to develop the secretion of the Islands of Jbangerhana in pure form. This secretion in known as insulin. Insulin is now used, as I have already described, • In the control of diabetes. Since these fundamental discoveries were made, another condition has been . found related to the pancreas which has to do with over-activity of this gland. Instead of an insufficient amount of insulin resulting in diabetes, there may be too much insulin secreted by the gland. This occurs, for example, when there is a tumor of the pancreas or when there is inflammation with overstimulation. In this condition the content of the bloood in insulin is also increased. In mild cases, characteristic symptoms are muscular weakness, aversion to work, dizziness, ravenous hunger, palpitation, irritability and sweating^ The intolerable and ravenous hunger is sometimes the most obvious symptom. The effects on the mind and on the consciousness are also important. They are exactly the same as those which occur when a person has too much insulin injected because of diabetes. In such cases, they may manifest first symptoms like those of drunkenness, eventual loss of consciousness altogether. When there is too much insulin in the body the amount of sugar in the blood falls greatly. Obviously, it is exceedingly important for a doctor to make a competent examination which will indicate the amount of blood sugar that is present. This is important because sometimes excessive insulin or hyperinsulinism is mistaken for drunkenness, hysteria, or similar mental disturbances. In people who suffer regularly with a slight amount of excess of insulin, it is necessary to provide extra sugar. If these people indulge in any muscular activity, such as a game of golf, they must have more sugar supplied during the muscular activity.

"She always has to share her room, and she loves order and peace. Her cousins are younger and they make so much noise she can't read. I feel sorry foe the child when they are here. 1 . 1 '' ''•'"? In such a case I am not going to advise ways and means by which Mary may escape. Instead this is lo suggest that fate descending in the form of noisy cousins is one of the best things I know to rouse this girl out of her drowsjr sleep of selfish comfort. ., .Not 'that it is always selfish^b be comfortable and contented. No indeed, but we must watch out for the ever-narrowing circle that crowds ou the normal. Inconvenience can be spelled so many ways. And the lone child, or one who lives in a large enough house so that dispositions never have to make room for others, may very ensily learn to resent any intrusion. Happiness Unselfish No child should harbor fixed ideas of happiness. He, or she, has to learn to be happy, not entirely along the lines of his own desire, but in wha may be considered reasonably fair by others. Were we to ask any young chile what would make him completely happy, he would probably say, "Candy, CAST OF CHARACTER^ KAY DEARBORN—heroine ivIiQ Inherit* n yacht (or vacation.

CHAPTER XIV WHEN 1 Grant Harper and Kay Dearborn went down those dark, deep steps they fully expected some death trap . . . perhaps an abandoned well to smother them out of existence. Or a pit in which they would be at the mercy of the owner of that insistent voice that came to them out of the night's blackness. Clutching Grant Harper's arm, Kay found her mind filled with all sorts of fiendish possibilities. Step by stsp they went deeper, and she felt sure that each step would be the last. "Here we are," the voice said. Then Kay felt the man brush past her, heard the unmistakable sound of a latch. What Kay and Grant saw in that sudden flash of light they would never forget on this earth. It was a long, paneled hallway, well carpeted. Beyond was another door. Dazed, Kay turned to her captor. He was the same man who had taken command of the "Chinook" and from whom she had attempted escape. Easily he ulipped the flashlight into his Docket, but the revolver he kept ready. "You are surprised," he said With a amile. "Indeed, I have other surprises in store for you. I am proud of my little place. I find myself anxious to show it— after so long a time." "We're not anxious to see it," Harper said evenly. "We're not alone on the island. You can't possibly— 1 " "Never turn down hospitality," tha man interrupted with a strange gleam in his eyes. "That door ahead will take you into the living room. Please go ahead." This revolver moved ever so slightly. * * * AY urged Grant ahead. "Please," she said. "We— we may as well do what he says." "filay as well?" The wad man chuckled pleasantly. "You must do what I say. You will find the place delightful. The electricity comes from my own little motorized plant. There is an air conditioning system, too. You'll note that the air is quite as fresh here as above. I have only one alight inconvenience. It does grow too chilled in the earth. Does it not?" Kay shuddered, felt Grant's arm slip tighter around her waist. '"Steady," he whispered. "Try not to show you're afraid. We may be able to ..." He stopped as their strange host drew closer, opening the door from the hallway. Ahead was a large room, paneled like the hallway, even to the ceiling. It was beautifully furnished, and the pictures and decorations reflected impeccable taste. "There is still more," the man said. "But suppose we sit here for a moment. You both must be —ah—tired after so strenuously trying to avoid my hospitality." "Thank you ..." Grant Harper shot Kay a glance full of meaning. "Of course, you can understand that we weren't aware of your intentions?" He settled in one of the huge leather chairs. "This is hardly what one would expect to find." The other smiled. With a curious gesture he slipped the revolver into his pocket. But there was no doubt that he was still aware of it. "I am glad you find it acceptable. You will > have to excuse me for a brief time. There are some things I have to attend to. Please feel free here. There are cigarets on the table there. In the sideboard you'll find fresh sandwiches and a bottle of very good wine." He started toward the door. There he turned. "Of course, it will do you no good to try to escape. I wouldn't advise it." With that he left the room. Kay and Grant heard the lock turn definitely from the outside. * * » TN panic, Kay started across the room toward the door. "Wait!" Grant said. "One thing we must not do—and that's lose our heads. The man is obviously a paranoiac of some sort. But that may be in our favor. At least he has nothing logical against us. He's not out for revenge against us in particular—so we *nay have a chance to dissuade him." ''But what can we do?" Harper smiled grimly. "For a moment, nothing. He said there was food in the sideboard. I move you we make use of it." "It—it may be poison," said Kay. Grant was at the sideboard, j ,"Well, at least we can depend on the wine. This seal is authentic, and hasn't been tampered with." Kay watched him break it open, fill two glasses set atop of the sideboard. H6 brought one to her. "Here you are. To what shall we drink?" Kay took the glass in trembling fingers. "There's no use," she said weakly. "I'm—I'm scared. Why should wo pretend that ha isn't going to kill us?" "Because," said Harper, touching his glass to hers, "we're going to keep him from it." When they had sipped the wine, Hnrper walked to a fireplace where logs and kindling were laid neatly. "A glass of wine and a hearth fire. Not bad, at that." He bent down, touched a match to the rolled paper. "We must accept his hospitality. He's very positive about that, you remember, and it may be the key to his heart, if he has one." Harper stood up before the fresh blaze. "Besides, that smoke has to go somewhere above. It might be seen by the 'Mistral.' " "Do you really think they'll find us?" "One thing you can be sure of. Mac and Tom are looking. When we came along that path I could have sworn I heard the speedboat's engine." # * HI TT was more than an hour later when their host returned. Now he looked as Kay had seen him on the "Chinook," for his clothes were dripping wet. "Ah," he said, smiling. "You have made yourselves at home. That is good. You will pardon my appearance, I know, Sometimes it is a bit inconvenient, living on an island without a boat. But then, I do not mind. I arn M strong swimmer—and one dries out Quickly before a hearth fire." Harper went forward disarmingly. "Better let mo take your coat, old man. It's soaking." "No, thanks ..." The man drew back suspiciously. Then he smiled ayain. "You have been comfortable?" "Very. You know, I'd like to know how in the world you've done all this. It's remarkable." The other shrugged. "Not so remarkable, my friend. It was begun many years ago. I have merely improved it. Over a long period—ordering my materials and equipment from one place and another, .so as to avoid publicity." He walked toward the hearth, turned suddenly with his back to the lire. "Would you really like Lo hear Hie story of these rooms?" (To Be Continued) U.S. Postoffice Is Largest Business in Communication Carrying of Mails Used to Be Private Business Undertaking FRANKLIN AIDED IT Philadelphia!! Developed First Public Postoffice System By WIUJS THORNTON NEA Service Stuff Correspondent (Second of o Scries of Five) WASHINGTON.-What is the biggest single establishment in the vital field of communications? American Telephone and Telegraph? Western Union? Postnl? RCA? Not at all. It is the U. S. Postoffice, which at lust report had 279,443 em- ployes as compared with A. T. and T.'s 262,000. The postofficc is n really gigantic business. 'It operates more than 45,000 postoffices, nnd at last report was handling well above 15,000,000,000 pieces of mail n year. Just one division, that of Postal Savings, is handling more than n billion dollars of depositors' money, merely as n sideline of the post- office's regular business. Wo are so accustomed to think of the postofficc as a natural public business that we forgot two things. One is that it used to be a private business. The other is that every other major country in the world operates or has a largo interest in, not only that nation's postal system, but the telephone and telegraph business as well. The line dividing private from public business here is not nearly so sharply drawn as is usually thought. Developed hy Franklin The first widespread postal system in the American colonies came when in 1G91 Thomas Nealc, a British court favorite, was granted a monopoly to establish a postal system. It never was satisfactory, and the public postal system was developed by Franklin. One of tile early handicaps of the system, however, still crops up—private competition. Early systems were always bothered by ship captains carrying and delivering mail personally, and by private lines established on the best-paying routes. That led to the particular feature that distinguished the postoffice among all other government business activities. It is a monopoly, protected stringently by law, of "the transportation of letters by regular trips or at stated periods over all post routes." This is a deliberate policy to protect the revenue of the government from competition. • It will be recalled that back in 933 when postage rose from 2 to 3 cents, certain large mailers tried to institute movies, a pony, do as I please and have everybody do as I say." He can match up every dream of ours with a miniature dream of his own. We all would escape, if we could, the pressure of everyday life. It is a natural trend for any but the most active child, to indulge the hermit instinct, which means more the renunciation of obligations than of blessings. This girl has been conditioned to have what she likes when she likes it, and, except for agreeable daily routine, never has had to overcome her selfishness. Life rolls along her way, day after clay, and when she is suddenly jolted out of her snug little program, she cannot hery'tesent- ing it. Cloisters Must Open She is not to be blamed, because every mother's son of us would be the same way if we had a chance. It is merely a mistake to allow any child to live and grow up in a completely scl {centered atmosphere. Inconvenience is good for every boy and girl. Enough of it will alter their ideas of happiness. In time they will learn that it is possible to bo happy the other person's way as well as their own. Muiry would be quite as happy trying to bo a good little hostess and making the visitors as welcome and comfortable as possible, once she got oul of her hermit rut and away from ti fixed idea of comfort. Harrison in Hollywoi Guess Who Knows How to Be Happy Though Married? It's Lupe Velez HOLLYWOOD.-This is an old-fashioned interview on "How to Be Happy Though Married in Hollywood," and it was obtained from—of oil people —Lupe Velez, the tempestuous tamale from San Louis Potosi nnd wny-points. It started with a gnm* of badminton. H seems that you cannot even play badminton with Senorn Weissmuller without hearing all about Jhon-n.ee. Between serves she observed thot Jolmee would be returning any day now, and that she was veree hnppoc, nnd that he would be delighted to find her playing all of these healthful games which she has installed in their back yard. On October 8, she said, smashing o vicious drive that whistled past me, she nnd Johnce will observe their fifth anniversary. "Our fifth!—you hear?" exclaimed Miss Velez, brandishing her racquet. "Maybe now these Hollywood people will know how it is for somebody to be married so long. "Once a certain star gave a party, and somebody nsked if Lupe and Johnee were invited, nnd she said, 'Oh, my no! One at a time, they ore fine people, but you know how they fight together. I do not want to be mixed up in a divorce.' "Since that time this certain star has been twice divorced, and I send word lo her last party that I do not weesh to come because I do not like to get mixed up in other people's divorces. Mee-o-oww!" The Different Way It seemed safer to stop playing badminton and listen, so I listened. Miss Velez curried on: "Thees talk about our fights—it makes me mud, I tell you! "The newspapers telephone and they soy, 'Are you und Johnee quarreling again?' und I say, 'Sure, we hate each other! Just a minute ago I keel him! Upstairs he is lying in a pool of his own blood!' That seems like a better way than the way most Hollywood people deny these things. They say, 'How ridiculous! Why, we have never had the slightest quarrel!—and the next day they are divorced. "Johnee and I laugh about these things. God knows he has got a temper to make anyone fight, and I have a temper, but we have had only three big fights. Two of these were silly things like all people have who are adjusting their lives to other people's lives. That is the bad time—the adjusting. A man does not like beets and his wife cooks beets, and they fight. One time we had a beeg fight over talking about who first wore pants, Dietrich oh Garbo. Lupe—She Finds Out "Our last fight was the worst. It was serious. I wanted to try a separation to see what would happen, but there was no talk about divorce. Johnee did not leave this house, and I should not have told the papers, because I only wanted to know if Johnee really wanted to play golf all day and poker all night, or whether he wanted his home. Well, that crazee Johnee— he wanted his home und his dinner at 7 all right. "This Winchell—ho wrote that Bruce Cabot was the causa of our separation. That made us laugh, and at dinner Johnee and Bruce would have duels with their table knives, und we would all laugh. Bruce is one of only three men that Johnee will let me go to the boxing matches with when he is away The others are our business manager and Eddie Mannix." Johnee Is the Big Boss Sitting there on the grass and wearing a $2 sun suit and a $10,000 diamond ring, Miss Velez explained about her domestic arrangement, Johnee is the big boss always in important things she is the boss only in the kitchen They do not go about much, and havt only a few close friends—people who are happily married. Not in the five years of their marriage have they hoc a boeg party in their own house. She never questions Johnee's behavior because people do not talk much about men. But she herself Is very careful because Hollywood loves to talk about women. She hates gossips. She said: "People come to me nnd they sny, 'My dear) you really should watch that handsome husband of yours. Ho . . .' "And I say, 'Shut up!' I soy, 'I read all the columns in the newspapers, and I know those people are professional writers who nre paid for writing what they write. Is somebody paying you 1 for coming and telling me about Johnee? Are you Interested in him? Do you want him, Go away and mind your own business!' "That is what I tell them. And damned quick, too!"

The screts of life deep in the heart of the Belgian Congo have perennialy fascinated Explorer Attilio Gatti. In the last 13 years lie has led nine expeditions south and from east to west. "Great Mother Forest" (Charles Scribner's Sons, $3.75) is the graphic account of his latest wanderings in this primitive land. Moving along with an easy, direct conversational style, the book is devoted particularly to the forbidden territory of the Kibali-Ituri forest. This is the "tabu" forest, a vast stretch of land which no man knows, shunned by Pygmy or native because of the superstitious terrors regarding it. Here, according to legend, the evil spirits dwell and monstrous animals roam. Into this jungle-forest, almost a solid wall of matted vegetation, Gatti and iis party ventured and returned with iKiny strange stories. He found out bout the rare animal, the okapi, and if raptured several specimens. Another most interesting suction of .his book is the -story of the native Watussi, which Gatti claims "are the children of the ancient Egyptian eiv- li/ation." Amply illustrated with photographs .aken by iliu Gatti expedition, "Great Mothers Forest" opens up the vast recesses of "darkest Africa" as have few books in recent years. Here are new slants on the Pygmy tribes und the rare animals, in particular the great apes, which are seldom glimpsed by native eyes. So you lay down the book finally with the "inferno of insects" still buzzing and swarming about your eyes and I he hideous cries of the great beasts .^lill rending your ears. That, after all, is something for your money.— K G. F. delivery systems within their own cities, believing that they could do it cheaper than mailing at 3 cents. The government put u stop to it. It May Break Even The government does not (as yet) object to competition with the parcel post by express companies. In fact, if you will remember when the parcel post was instituted, there was considerable objection by the express companies to "government competition." The postoffice is thus not only a huge business, but a legal monopoly. How does it do financially 'Well, its operating deficit during the past 100 years has piled up to $1,601,569,000. For 193G, the operating deficit was $88,316,324.29. Deducting expenses like mail subsidies, which are not really chargeable to running the postoffice, the net operating deficit for 1938 was $16,909,67li.50. Mr. Fraley is hopeful that what with better business in 1937, the postoffice may break even on actual operations. Much Curried Free It is quite useless to ry to compare these figures with any hypothetical private operation of the system. The deficits are operating deficits only, and make no allowance for the heavy overhead charges any private system would have for millions of dollars invested in buildings. Those are "presented" to the Psotoffice Department out of other appropriations. If its operations were charged with interest on that huge investment, the deficit would be colossal. On the other hand, no private system would be expected to carry free in one year 669,352,008 pieces of mail for government departments, almost iU.000,000 pieces of free franked mail for members of Cnogress and others, 407,300,235 publications mailed free within the county of publication, and B48.U16 mailings of free matter for the bind. That is the "deadweight" burden carried in 1936 by the public post- office system because it is public. U ,was equal to some $34,000,000 worth of business.
